So every year I want a Christmas tree, and every year Bjorn tells me no. His reasoning, "it's messy and you make me do all the work." I can't argue with this because I'm lazy and he's right. I make him put up the tree, put on the lights, help me decorate (he usually finishes by himself because I get bored), then he's in charge of watering it and keeping the cats away from it. So, he has a major point, he does all the work. Last year, to counter all the work I suggested we get an inexpensive fake tree...I just wanted a little one to put on a table top or something. I figured I couldn't get bored decorating a tree so small it could sit on a table. We went shopping for the fake tree, but then couldn't agree on which one to get, so we ended up with nothing. This year, I had a brilliant idea...Let's make our Christmas tree! Bjorn was like "right, how are you going to do that." And I was like, "duh, I'm going to make it out of sticks!" He thought I was joking, but yesterday he and I together really did make ourselves a Christmas tree out of sticks! It's not decorated yet, but here are a couple pictures of my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree! I'll post more once I get it all decorated.
Here is the finished tree...I can't wait to get some lights and decorations on it. I just have to convince Bjorn to get everything down from the attic for me tonight!

Together on the butt jiggler machine...I know I said we weren't doing any more Jello shots, but apparently Bjorn didn't get the memo. He thought is was hilarious to make everyone take a shot while working out on the butt jiggler machine. In order,
It's too bad you can't see in the photos the actual jiggling motion of the machine. It was just like a Betty Boop cartoon I once saw!
Us girls got in on the princess action too; we totally rocked the tulle skirts!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BJORN!

Coincidence, I think not! When I asked him about it, first he told me that John gave it to him. When I said I didn't believe him, he changed his story and said he acquired it from Nathan years ago when we all lived in Greenwood. Nathan, if you can verify that story you should, otherwise I have no option other than to think he bought this for his mullet. He can't have a mullet! It's muscle car scented for crying out loud!

Here's Rick cutting some wood as well!
And Bjorn very seriously hammering something...
Bjorn is also doing some "Bjorn Style" Painting on the walls. They are still works in progress, but here they are.
This is the door that Bjorn painted for Neil & Fara's wedding, it has been built into the wall for posterity! In case you don't know, the painted door was the "wedding program" and listed the evening's events. This is a bit on the cutesy side compared to Bjorn's normal work, plus he doesn't normally use purple!. P.S. This one is finished.
Obviously since there is a Neil & Fara door built into the wall, there had to be a Becky & Bjorn door as well. This one is not finished yet, but I'll post another picture when its all done.
This is one of the walls that is not getting the pretty wood siding...instead, Bjorn has painted it (much to Peg's delight)! I don't think this is finished yet either...Bjorn never leaves much open space, which is why I'm sure it's not done. I'll update you on this as well!
After all that hard work we needed a bit of fun! For dinner Rick made 2 different kinds of cheese fondue, yummy! And for dessert, some chocolate fondue, yummier! We played another rousing game of Apples to Apples and of course after Nathan's B-day Bash I had to make some more jello shots! It's a novelty after all, plus I had all those stupid plastic syringes to reuse! LOL!
I have to admit, my Jello shots were no better than the ones we got at The Rock...blech! I am convinced the novelty has worn off; no more Jello shots for us!

Buckets & Jell-O Shooters...the shooters were really, really, really, disgusting!
